Odranoel is on a distinguished road
Hi Foamers,

in my MS project I'm running an adjoint shape optimization using OF. For now I'm working on NACA 0012 and at the end of adjoint calculation I need to modify the shape accordingly to the Sensitivity. I'm trying to do it with deformedGeom, using as vector field the Sensitivity multiplied by the patch normals.

The point is: I need to smooth Sensitivity to avoid a bad deformation, but I can't do it with an external python because the Sensitivity (like U or p in a simple RANS simulation) at the final time is a list of values not ordered along the points of my geometry (in this case a NACA 0012).
I don't know how to sort them and make the smoothing with a python and I don't know how to smooth the Sens directly in OF. I can extract the Sens with sample but it is useless for deformedGeom.
Please help me, I'm totally desperate.

Thank you in advance.
